Forever Friends

I made this card for Donna one of my lovely ' forever friends' i have made on the Cuddly Buddly forum, it was to thank her for the lovely stamps she sent me and a book to read on my holidays :) Thank you Donna. The stamp was from Docrafts and is from the 'Forever Friends range of stamps. I was so impressed with them i went back and bought another two lol. I have coloured the bear with Promarkers and have cuttle bugged the top half of the card and added some paper from my stash to the bottom. The flower is Prima and the leaf cut from Quickutz die, lil buttons i bought at the NEC way back in March.

I also made a little wallet to put a little something in for Donna, its something she loves very much!! Answers on a postcard please lol. The wallet was made with two pieces of A5 card and scored either side 3 times to create a fold, the same with the bottom. I then added the other piece of card to create the back and the top, i have cut the border out with my friskars border punch, added some paper and ribbon. The flower was from WH Smiths and the 'Thanks' from a scrapbook set i have, ribbon from Poppicrafts.

Yum Yum its Dairy Milk :) :) Hope Donna has saved us all some??

Lets Dine Out

I have used Tilda from the 'Summer Magnolia' stamp club, coloured in with Promarkers my favourite at the moment as they are so easy and quick to use. I have used DCVW card stock and papers from the Laura Ashley paper collection. Now i am not usually in to green, but am quite happy with this one. The flowers are Prima and leaves are cut from a quickutz die, little buttons from my stash. Now the layout is one of my own, i cut all the pieces out and moved them around and around my paper before i decided where to glue them down lol. I hope you likey???

Spoon full Of Sugar Challenge 16#

I have been so wrapped up with making CB cards that have neglected the challenges i little bit lately, so when i saw this sketch by Nikki on 'A spoon full of sugar' challenge i thought i must have a go at that. I have used papers from my Laura Ashley pack, i then used one of my precious
Hangler stamped images given to me by Gail. I do hope its not to long before i can get my hands on some of these lovely stamps. The flowers are prima's and spotty ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

Santa's List

I decided i would have a go at a 'criss cross' card with this stamp and considering its the first time i have made one i found it fairly easy. The stamp is another Cuddly Buddly one called 'Santa's list', i coloured him with promarkers and added a little bit of glamour dust here and there. The papers are also CB downloads from 'Winter warmers' set, embellishment is also from CB shop. I haven't got one of those lovely tab punches from stampin up! so cut and circle and embossed it to make my tab top. The oval and scallop was cut with nestabilities dies and the white oval was embossed with 'Swiss dots' folder. I think i will use this fold if card again :)

Its a Girl

This card was quick and easy to make and great for one of those last minute cards. I have used the pram from the cuddly buddly Christmas stamps, so a stamp isn't just for Chistmas lol. The image has been coloured with promarkers and mounted on to ovals that i have cut with nestabilities. The papers are downloads from Cuddly Buddly Kwackerz set pink, the lace is also form the CB shop and is brilliant value for money, its a roll of paper in all different designs. The 'made with love' is a little charm that i have stuck on to the bow, also from CB.

Emmy Pushing Pram

Well this is a different look to 'Emmy' ,this time she is in pastel colours and i have added the pram. The Cuddly Buddly stamps are so versatile and you can get different looks by changing the colours and the papers. The papers are 'Let it snow papers' downloads from Cuddly Buddly, they have them in different colours. I have coloured with promarkers and added some snowflakes from the cuttlebug die and embossed with cuttlebug Swiss dots folder. The fold is a different one from me, i liked it so much after seeing Edna's card i thought i would give it a go (Thanks Edna :)) Its basically a card folded back on itself and a topper added at the half way point, and it leans forward onto the base card (Hope that makes sense??)

The flowers used are prima essentials, embossing done with Cuttlebug swirl folder, snowflakes also dies from Cuttlebug.

A baby card made with Cuddly Buddly stamp 'Toy train' which is part of the Santa's workshop set. The gingham paper is also a download from CB its from the 'Little Kwackerz' paper . I just love this paper lace border it comes in a pack of 4 different designs and is sticky backed, so just cut and stick ideal. The greeting is computer generated and the lil heart is also from Cuddly Buddly, so get yourself along to the shop and take a look :) Oh train was coloured with promarkers.
